We are working on on-prime server which is 20.4, configured dynamic content URL and installed the plug-in. The component is not working though the dynamic content url is working without having any issues. I can able to retrieve the test page. So can you please let us know if any step is missing?
Hi everybody, does anyone have experience using the Rich Text editor to paste a table from Excel into the editor?
We are trying to capture user inputs using rich text editor which contains multiple fonts, bullets etc.. and then this information is used to generate a word document (DOCX). Can you help to suggest how we can generate this word document while retaining the rich text features ?
Currently we are on Appian 20.3 and we are using smart services available to generate the word document.
Note: uploading images is currently only supported for on-premise customers. We're working on a solution that will be cloud-approved.
